Nowadays, it is not enough for Premier League clubs to sell replica kits, they now have their own clothing ranges on offer.
West Ham United recently unveiled their new line known as ‘Performance’, which consists of polo tops, T-shirts, shorts and tracksuit trousers.
As expected, the colours of the attire stay true to the Hammers’ claret and blue, but the supporters are less than impressed by what is on offer.
The East London outfit posted a tweet showing goalkeeper Darren Randolph, striker Andy Carroll and defender Jose Fonte modelling the new gear.
Looking good, lads!

Unfortunately for the club, they did not get the response that they were probably hoping for as the majority of fans slated the designs.
Many believe that the clothing line is not up to Premier League standard, which mirrors the general opinion of the team this season.
@WestHamUtd One step forward four steps back. Terrible clothing line

@WestHamUtd Looks like the fake gear you'd get off of Romford market

@WestHamUtd I'm sorry, but these look awful. We are a Premier League club, but this more like Sunday League standard.

West Ham have struggled for results this season, and at one point got dragged into a relegation battle, but Slaven Bilic’s side earned a surprise 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur last week to retain their top-flight status.
